While most of the setting is authentic, the production company could not find a suitable crypt in the Danville, Kentucky cemetary, so the climactic sequence was shot in a fake tomb constructed in the actual graveyard. The phony mausoleum became a local attraction after the film aired. See more »
I remember Child of Glass from when I was four years old
I lived in Canada for one year in 1978 and then moved home to Australia. During that year I saw Child of Glass on TV. I was four years old. I was obsessed with it and didn't find it scary at all - just fascinating. In recent years I have only vaguely remembered the plot. When I found out about this website I was so keen to see if what I remembered was correct. Reading other's comments I've discovered that my memories are accurate. I remembered there was a mystery that had to be solved by a child, the ghost of a little girl, a lost treasure and a well that held the answer. Almost 30 years later, I am so keen to see it again, however, I doubt I would ever be able to find it here in Australia. Instead, I will attempt to find a copy of the book and its sequel.
